About the Artist:

Known for her innovative style, Maggie Taylor (American, b. 1961, Gainesville, Florida) is well known for her technique and use of a flatbed scanner instead of a traditional camera to capture the objects and photographs she collects from various sources. Finding inspiration in 19th-century photographs, taxidermy specimens, mounted insects, vintage toys, sea shells, feathers, and other artifacts she finds at flea markets, online auctions, and in her own backyard, Taylor creates surreal pigmented digital prints that call to mind tintype photographs from another world. In 1996, Taylor first used Adobe Photoshop to manipulate the timelessness of antique portraits by playing on their whimsical nature. She uses background elements to add texture and a sense of space, spontaneously and intuitively creating an ethereal style which resonates a surreal narrative content. In 2008 Taylor published her version of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” with 45 illustrations accompanying Lewis Carroll’s original text.  Now she has completed the sequel, “Through the Looking Glass”, images of which will be on display in the gallery.

All prints are available in the following sizes:


8 x 8 inches, edition of 15: $1,500
15 x 15 inches, edition of 15: $2,800
